Programme

Exposome & preventive health: tackling complexity

At the first edition of the Exposome-NL conference, which takes place on 20 May 2022 in Utrecht, amongst others Emma Schymanski, Gary Miller, Giulia Menichetti and Joreintje Mackenbach will share the latest insights and future perspectives in the field of exposome research

A number of break-out sessions will take place in both the morning and afternoon. Experts will cover topics such as the microbiome, metabolomics, sensoring, geospatial modelling, data science and exposome & policy.

During lunch we will organise a poster session, where about thirty early career scientists will share their work.

It proves to be a special edition, as we will team up with the Netherlands Metabolomics Centre. During the day they will host several sessions in the Spark, one of the break-out rooms at our venue. So feel free to attend one of their sessions.

The conference will be hosted by Anya Sitarama communications consultant, conference moderator and documentary producer specialising in global health, science, environment and international development.
